  • Pininfarina reveals its most extreme car concept ‘H2 Speed’ in Geneva!

The futuristic fuel cell racer by Pininfarina is on display at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Pininfarina has revealed its latest car concept the H2 Speed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The new concept looks like a Le Mans car from the future.

The H2 Speed is powered by hydrogen and it has a top speed of 186mph. Pininfarina has proved it can keep on bringing arresting concept cars to the Geneva Motor Show.

The H2 Speed is one of the most extreme concepts by the Italian design temple. The H2 Speed concept was created in a technical partnership with GreenGT.

GreenGT is a Franco-Swiss specialist electric powertrain outfit. Therefore the bodywork of the new concept contains both the Swiss and Italian flags, according to CarMagazine.

The Pininfarina H2 Speed uses a development of its tried and track-tested powertrain. The bodywork of H2 Speed is shaped partly by Pininfarina’s stylists and by the search for downforce. According to Pininfarina the H2 Speed is halfway between a racing prototype and a production supercar.

The new type of hydrogen fuel cell system in H2 Speed has been dubbed ‘Full Hydrogen Power’. The system consists of two very powerful electric motors.

The motors are capable of delivering a total of 500 horse power. The system also includes a lightweight two-stack hydrogen fuel cell. Similarly a braking energy recuperation system is also present in the new H2 Speed concept.

The H2 Speed will not have any gearbox, clutch or diff and the drive will go directly to rear wheels. The drive will be monitored by innovative torque vectoring software. The biggest plus side is the absence of any harmful emissions as it will only emit water.
